    Full titles read: "The (not so) weaker sex! again! Don McCorkindale meets Vina de Vesci. Introduced by Colin Symons and Refereed by -----." (timecode obscures title.)

    Location of events unknown - London?

    M/S of a man (Colin Symons?) in a boxing ring, introducing Don McCorkindale who stands beside him. Several other men in boxing gear stand around the ring. The man introduces others of the 'McCorkindale Camp' and says Don has agreed to two sparring rounds with Miss Vina de Vesci. Miss de Vesci climbs into the ring and limbers up while the men give her admiring glances.

    Don and Vina start boxing - she's pretty tough! After the first round Vina is handed a compact and powder puff to adjust her makeup. Into round 2 - Vina seems to be enjoying it! Don is not very good at pretending to be beaten by her.

    Note: Vina seems to be a fitness instructor - she appears in another Pathetone item - JH.
